Empty Nest To Full House: When Your Kids Move Back Home


empty nest: relationship advice for parents and their adult children
Your kids graduated school and they're moving back home ... now what?

Establishing ground rules at the beginning of their stay will save a lot of frustration, resentment, and possible conflict down the line. It may also very well save the relationship—and your relationship with your children is priceless. Supporting one another through tough times is what family is for. So whether you're excited to have your children back home or rolling your eyes at the very thought of their return, take time to do this right. Then take advantage of this time to reconnect and get to know your adult children for the people they have become. When communication remains open and family members respect one another, this can be a wonderful time to spend with your adult children. And remember, your nest will be empty again one day.
